Hollywood vs. America
Michael Weldon of Psychotronic Video reviews George W. Bush's career as a movie producer—or, at least, as a name on a production company's board of directors while his dad served as vice president and then president. Weldon wonders,
I'd love to know if GWB did anything besides lend his famous name and share in the profits of these movies. Did he help secure locations, read or approve scripts or make casting suggestions? Did he attend premieres and party with the stars?
I think it's a safe bet that the answer to all those questions is "no," but what fun is that? All you auteurists are invited to find a connecting thread in Bush's filmography, which like his life stretches from Down and Out in Beverly Hills to Good Morning, Vietnam.
